And a Comic Cast in a pear tree!

December 20, 2009

Just like the Christmas Specials of Morecambe and Wise and the two Ronnies, families all over Ireland gather around their computers, basking in the warm glow of the screen and the gentle hum of it’s harddrive to listen to the  Comic Cast Christmas Special. And this year we’re decking the halls with boughs of comics with reviews of The Muppet Show: Meet the Muppets by Robert Langridge, Superman: Red Son by Mark Millar/Killian Plunkett, Moronoid #1, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Phillip K Dick/Tony Parker and Criminal by Ed Brubaker/Sean Phillips. Over the blower we chat to Gareth Lee about the first ever ISA CON 2010 Animation and Games Event at the Irish School of Animation, Ballyfermot featuring speakers from Rare Ltd. and DreamWorks Animation. Between pulling crackers we’ll be reviewing this seasons biggest movies – Where the Wild Things Are and AVATAR 3D.  We’ll also be offering last minute gift ideas for the comic book / animation enthusiast in your life and if all that wasn’t enough we have a stuffed turkey of all the latest comics news from the new PSP comic reader to the bizarre new Turtles movie – Turtles Forever
